Steam Overlay compatibility.
« on: February 15, 2016, 08:50:59 AM »

I was wondering if some of you used the Steam Overlay for this game, and how well it works with it. I know some games that have a launcher have trouble for detection, and others will have crashes or really wonky interactions with the hotkeys of the overlay, is it the case here? I would like to use it because it's very handy to never miss a message from someone (I usually crank up the volume pretty loudly in single player games), or be able to check something on the wiki really quickly. Thanks.

Works just fine in my experience, with some issues alt-tabbing (might need to get the game back thru task manager)

Steam broadcast works too.

It works fine on my end.  Nothing too bad, although you might find the standard overlay key combo of Shift + Tab a bit annoying.

I never alt tab unless it's an emergency so I don't mind that, and for the shortcut this is what I use in every game. Sometimes it can be a bit annoying because the game isn't coded to ignore the first input, which is opening the overlay itself, so usually it opens up the map as well, but it's a very slight inconvenience that I don't mind. I just wanted to know if it made the game unstable as it's sometimes the case, but apparently that's not true here. I'll use it then.
